Grumpy Reindeer farmer Ben Solo wears a lot of plaid and can't wait for Christmas to be over so he can stop being a seasonal punchline. When journalist hiker Rey gets lost on his property right before a snowstorm hits, he may just change his mind about the holiday.
“Are you out here all alone?” he asked.
“Obviously,” she said, narrowing her eyes.
“On Christmas Eve?” He couldn’t hide the surprise.
She set her jaw. “Look, I’d rather not get into my life choices right now, if you don’t mind? Do you know where the lodge is or not?”
He took a step closer and she didn’t flinch. This close he could see the light sprinkling of freckles on her checks reflecting back in the full moon light.
“You see that mountain there?” He reached out a long arm and she followed his finger.
He waited. She tilted her head and huffed. “Yes, I see it.”
“On the other side is the Black Mountain Lodge.”
Some of the color drained from her face. He wasn’t a mind reader, but he swore he could hear her unspoken, "oh, shit," from where he stood.
